Shipping PolicyFussy-Shopper's Shipping Policy and Method

Shipping Policy: impliments the "Best Practices" method of shipping.


What Are Shipping Rates?

Shipping Rates are the costs associated with shipping any and all products via reputable shipping carriers, eg: UPS, FedEx & USPS.Yes... Even the "free shipping" has these costs included.


What Are The Primary Shipping Methods?

  • "Low List Price" This offers a low price then added inflated shipping costs.
  • "Free Shipping" This offers a higher price with the shipping pre-calculated into that price.
  • "Best Practices" This offers a modest list price, and adds the actual shipping costs.


Comparative Examples of Shipping Methods:

To further illustrate this for you so that you may get a full appreciation for Fussy-Shopper's best practices shipping policy I have shared the three examples below.

Please note: This information is from an actual comparative shopping research project conducted on October 1, 2012. The research project's data was taken from the very popular comparative shopping site known as "The Find", and it allows retailers a free listing for each of their products. (The product compared was a Quilt, and for privacy purposes the real name of the competitors has been disquised. Only the method of shipping has been used to describe other competitors.)
